Reviews

Super beautiful place for a walk around. Interesting geology around together with unique and very colorful architecture make the place one of a kind. It can be super busy .

Peggy's cove is accompanied by a beautiful scenic, but short drive. The "village" is spectacularly charming and quaint. Its an experience of a life time! You absolutely have to have lunch & try the seafood.

Great for photography

This place never gets old... From the tide to the horizon! You can have waves violently smashing on the rocks and the wind is so strong that you can lean into it! Or it'll be calm and colourful waters! Make sure you stay OFF the dark coloured rocks, one wrong step and you can slip and into the ocean you go! Seriously, people have disappeared because they haven't been careful! Check your sunset times, come early and explore the coast line, have a bite to eat and watch the sunset! You won't be disappointed!
